Hello! I hope that everyone had a great week! Ours was super busy for days but we had a blast. I need to spend some quality time with my Christmas to-do list today – so much to bake and make and do and see! I am super excited and I know my boyo is as well!

Read Last Week:

Last week I finished up the two books I had started the week before, and then made inroads into a third.

I enjoyed Lovelight Farms – it was a cute little friends to lovers romance set on a Christmas tree farm. I enjoyed it but I am not sure I will read any others in this series.

A Study in Charlotte was a really interesting take on the Watson/Homes theme. I especially liked the Watson family guide to taking care of and understanding their Holmes. Lol. It was a fun read but also really well done.

And I am only a bit of the way into Outfoxed but I loved the previous two books in this series so I am sure I will love this one as well. There is an entirely fox themed gift store in this little town, which to me sounds like a wonderful place to shop. I am all about the rabbits and foxes!

Reading This Week:

I love these cozy mysteries set in the highlands of Scotland. Hamish Macbeth is a comfort series for me that I love to return to again and again. Lochdubh is a quirky, crazy little town, full of personality.

Watching and Listening:

For all the holidaying we did last week, we still managed to get in some down time together. Frankly, some days we were plopped lifeless in our bed recovering from the busyness but we were definitely happy and relaxed.

In movies we watched Enola Holmes 2, White Christmas, and See How They Run. I absolutely loved Enola Holmes 2. Millie Bobby Brown did a great job, the plot was interesting, and um, hello, Henry Cavill. However, I really enjoyed See How They Run! It is a movie that revolves around the longest running play ever, The Mousetrap by Agatha Christie. Sam Rockwell is in it and I love him in everything he does and this was no exception. He didn’t have his quick mischievousness in this movie, but instead was a sad, drunk detective but also, a good one? Saorise Ronan played the constable who was the upright eager beaver with a great enthusiasm for her work. There was a Wes Anderson quality about this movie as well which we really appreciated.

In television we watched Derry Girls (the newest season), finished up the GB Baking Show, and that was it. Derry Girls cracks us up! It is funny and endearing and also very very moving. I usually finish up every season crying. It is set against the tumultuous political background of Northern Ireland, and while much of the show is mainly teenage hijinks and shenanigans, there is real depth and seriousness as well.

And that’s that from around here! What is going on in your world?

  1. We are looking forward to Enola Holmes 2, so I’m glad to see you enjoyed it. There are just a few more episodes of the Great British Baking Show for us. I think I’d like to try Derry Girls, too.

    It’s been a long time since I read the M. C. Beaton series set in Scotland. I think Beaton also had a series about a library on wheels.

  2. I’m so glad it’s Christmas time now. I can play all the music and decorate and not feel guilty ha. A Highland christmas looks fun.

    White Christmas is one of my favorite movies so I imagine I’ll find a way to sneak that into my schedule soon. 🙂

    1. I made us take some much needed downtime! It was fantastic. Now though back to the grind. Lol.

      I usually start shopping in October for Christmas, but I don’t usually start anything else Christmasish. This year though, I was just in the mood a bit earlier. Lol.

  3. We have the tree up and a few gifts bought so I’m feeling pretty on top of things at the moment! My husband just watched See How They Run and was just telling me how much he thought I would like it. I’ll definitely have to watch it. I hope you’re having a wonderful week!

      1. Okay. She wrote Agatha Raisin too and I picked up one of the later books. It was terrible. Then I realized she was very old now and I think maybe she’s not really writing them anymore. I’m going to try to read this one in the next couple of weeks.
